Jesus Christ is not Your Role Model

Christ was more than a model, for He is the source of the very love that we need to show others.  If we are to love others, we have to do more than try to imitate His behavior, we have to receive Him and His greatest act of love for us.

Adoption

It saddens me to see people talking selfishly of God’s love for them. Often they talk about the great and wonderful things that God has given them without turning anything around to give thanks or devotion to God. They come across like the spoiled rich kid who has more than they could ever use, but still expects more from life.

Our Father

He can be the creator of everything, the All-knowing One, the Ever-present One, the Holy One, and Almighty God and stay distant from our world. Even though He is all those things, He is so much more, because He comes right down in the middle of our world to be daily connected to our lives. Every day He is saying, “I love you.” In every victory, He is there cheering us on. In every defeat, His is there to pick us up.  He is the perfect Father.
